As we all know, January is the month for all the new year resolutions, and it’s not a secret that a high percentage of population will be on some kind of a diet this month. I won’t be, as I do not believe in diets… Yup, I would rather cut my leg off, than go through a misery of dieting. And I love food too much, to deprive myself of eating it. But, with that said, I have overdosed on the cake last month, so I’ve decided to stick to lots of fresh veggies and cut down on sugar. Also, I did book myself into a spinning classes, which I am yet to attend… πŸ˜‰

But enough about new year resolutions. Let’s talk food! Today’s recipe is a really easy, quick, and super fresh. Delicious, healthy broccoli salad with red cabbage, raisins, almonds and super creamy cashew dressing. Yum & yummo! πŸ™‚

Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetables, and it’s packed with all essential vitamins and minerals. One cup of broccoli contains about 43 milligrams of calcium, which is a nice contribution to our daily need. And did you know that same cup of this green goodness has more vitamin C than you need in the entire day? Well, now you do! πŸ™‚

If you remember my post about clementine cordial, where I talked about excessive amounts of clementines after festive season, you will know that I do not like to waste food. And this broccoli salad with creamy cashew dressing is another proof that you can use your leftover veggies and still have super healthy, nutritious meal, without breaking the bank. Clementines are in season now, and I love adding citrus flavours to my salads, they work great in dressings and sauces, and it’s another great way of using up any citrus fruit, that have seen a better days.
